Have you ever looked at the ingredients in commercial crackers? There are so many preservatives and added non-sense! One only needs a handful of ingredients to make a tasty cracker. Level up your next charcuterie board with these tangy Gluten Free Goat Cheese Basil Crackers. Or pair them with your favorite wine.

These Gluten Free Goat Cheese & Basil Crackers are also chock-full of protein and omega 3! Almond flour is my favorite thing to experiment with. I usually try to sprinkle in a little flax seed too, for that added boost of nutrition.

Like goat cheese as much as I do, make these Bite Size Goat Cheese Balls. You’ll love them.

It only takes a few ingredients to make these tasty tangy goat cheese & basil crackers.

The key to making these crackers is making sure they are nice and cold before cutting. Shape your dough in a log. Stick them in the refrigerator for a few hours. If in a pinch for time, put them in the freezer for about 20 minutes, and they cut up real nice too. Cut them as thin as you can without losing the shape. The thinner they are the crispier they will be.

Silpat mats are great for baking these Tangy Goat Cheese & Basil Crackers.

Special Equipment

A few kitchen tools are needed for this recipe:

  • Food Processor: This really helps bring the dough together without over mixing.
  • Microplane Zester: This tool is great for getting the garlic super fine. If you don’t have one, just make sure you don’t have any big bits of garlic.
  • Soft Cheese Knife (The kind with the holes in the blade): This makes cutting the cracker dough easier. If you don’t have one, use a thin sharp bladed knife.
  • Silpat Baking Mat: Use Silpat baking mats for easy release. There is no need to spray non-stick cooking spray with Silpat mats. If you don’t have these, a baking sheet and cooking spray will work just fine.

Goat cheese is one of my favorite cheeses. Here are more recipes with Goat Cheese that you’ll love.
